HBO’s Chernobyl Turns Up the Heat on IMDB

As the hit HBO drama approaches its final episode, IMDB has it listed at the top of its charts today, June 3, with a 9.6 rating!

In case you haven’t heard of the powerful new Carolyn Strauss-produced miniseries (yes, that Strauss, from Game of Thrones), this is what you’ve been missing:

CHERNOBYL dramatizes the 1986 nuclear accident, one of the worst human-made catastrophes in history, and tells the story of the brave men and women who made incredible sacrifices to save Europe from unimaginable disaster, all the while battling a culture of disinformation.

The show stars Jared Harris (as Valery Legasov, a Soviet nuclear physicist), Stellan Skarsgård (as Soviet Deputy Prime Minister Boris Shcherbina), and Emily Watson (as Ulana Khomyuk, a Soviet nuclear physicist committed to solving the mystery of what led to the Chernobyl disaster).
